ENTA12019 - Propeller Maintenance

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Propellers are a common method of providing propulsive force to small and medium-size aircraft. In this unit, you will learn about propeller fundamentals and operation. You will learn about the construction and maintenance of propellers and operations such as pitch control, synchronising and ice protection of propellers. A necessary part of this unit will be conducting practical tasks with different types of procedures, components and systems. This unit is delivered at Aviation Australia campuses by Aviation Australia staff in partnership with CQUniversity.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.
